Share it: @Nickelodeon #NickSubstitute


Nickelodeon is giving the gift of surprise with its hidden camera prank show The Substitute, this time featuring guest star and Grammy Award-winning artist and performer NE-YO going undercover at John Muir Middle School in Burbank, CA. The holiday-themed episode airs on Saturday, Nov. 30, at 9:00 p.m. (ET/PT) on Nickelodeon.

Using a full costume and prosthetics to hide his identity, NE-YO is transformed into three completely unrecognizable substitute teachers, pranking students as a master chef with a disastrous recipe for gingerbread cookies and eggnog, an out of control ‘90s rocker with an appetite for destruction and a quirky artist with an unusual flare for the arts.


The series features celebrities who are transformed by a team of Hollywood special effects artists to go undercover as a substitute, surprising unsuspecting kids in schools, camps and other locations. After a day full of ridiculous mayhem, the substitute reveals themselves and the organization receives a donation for $25,000.


The Substitute premiered last month with international superstar John Cena, following two specials that aired earlier this year with guest stars Jace Norman (Henry Danger) and the multitalented comedian Lilly Singh. Additional celebrities will be announced at a later date.


The Substitute is produced by Industrial Media’s The Intellectual Property Corporation. Eli Holzman, Aaron Saidman and Todd Hurvitz (Punk’d), serve as executive producers, with Hurvitz also serving as the showrunner. Jessica Brown, Nickelodeon’s Vice President of Current Series, also serves as an executive producer. Production of The Substitute for Nickelodeon is overseen by Rob Bagshaw, Executive Vice President, Unscripted Content.

NE-YO’s first-ever holiday album, Another Kind Of Christmas, is available everywhere HERE.
